A short story by Anton Chekhov , read by Micheline Patton
While Anton Chekhov is probably best known as a dramatist, he was also a short-story writer of undoubted genius. His stories indeed have a sensitiveness and insight into human psychology that is scarcely surpassed in a country whose literature is renowned for these qualities. Chekhov has been called the play-wright of farewells, and in ' The Kiss ' he writes of that saddest of all farewells, the good-bye of a man to something that he has never really had.
The story is simple enough, and the heart of the reader or listener must go out to the timid little officer, Ryabovitch, who, with his ' spectacles, sloping shoulders, and * whiskers like a lynx's ' reaps his few-seconds of unexpected heaven, and finds that they lead him to a disillusionment that he can bravely defy.

There is no actual story behind Sibelius's ' Tapiola '. The score is headed with the words: There the sombre forests of the North stand, age-old, mysterious, dreaming savage dreams ; the great god of the forest dwells there and the demons of the woods weave their spells in the darkness '. The great god is Tapio, the god of the forest in Finnish mythology. The scene (if one may call it that) of ' Tapiola ' is laid in the dark, secretive depths of the forests of Finland, which, even to the inhabitants who know them, seem to hide more than they reveal.
Delius's Piano Concerto
This Concerto was composed in Florida in 1897 and first performed seven years later at Elberfeld. Two years later, however, Delius re-wrote the work and condensed the original three movements into one. ' In its present form ', says Philip Heseltine , 'it is one of Delius's strongest and most closely-knit works: there is hardly a bar that is not directly related to the initial thematic material.' The first section is based on two contrasted themes, the second on a new theme derived from the first theme of the first section, and the third recapitulates the material of the first section.
